there is a new thread on MPA
BTW the new thread is extra pathetic and hilarious because it was started by a girl complaining that I rejected her application because her username seemed too pro-ana. So her next step was to go to MY PRO ANA and whine "it was not pro-ana at all, I just like butterflies". OK hun, I must have misunderstood, my apologies!

Curiosity to find the culprit compelled me, & though I wasn’t able to find it due to the site not letting me search, I did find this:

Let’s frame it.

I don't know what it is on MPA and don't remember exactly what she asked for here, but something like OhToBeAButterfly? It just reeked of pro-ana Tumblrina so I rejected it. At first I thought I was possibly being too harsh but then one of my favorite snitches sent me the MPA post and I was like I KNEW IT.

Also I won't give them another link but there is a new thread on MPA about how we're all actually middle-aged child pornographers or whatever. The usual yawn. It does spike the applications though.
Ooh do we have Bingo or Blackout?

At BMI of 24, they’d need two squares...:p
Just did a little deep dive and I don’t get myproana. I understand some of them must be sick, really actually ill with an eating disorder. But for the most part, from my (admittedly cursory) exploration, they seem like they’re full of failed dieters? Who hate us because they can’t get in?

I don’t get it. Just diet better?

So of course there are people with legit EDs but for that group of girls that’s just in it for the dramatics - From my experience with my dramatic group of friends back in high school (so glad that’s far in the past) there is a certain % of girls who glamorise the idea of being so skinny that people worry about you, because they either want the attention or they have something else wrong with them and are trying to distract from that by having something else “wrong” with them. At least with some of the girls I spoke to, they thought that whole idea of ‘being so skinny that you faint in the middle of a public space and then everybody will be so worried for you it’ll be amaaaaazingggg’ was a great idea.

Personally I blame overly dramatic ED movies.

of course this doesn’t explain why they hate SG so much since this forum is not for EDs, but it explains why they all want to be on MPA

disclaimer this is just my best guess im not a psychologist but they should probably try talking to one

Imagine thinking that this is a good flex.

I laughed 🤷‍♀️
The constant pedophilia allegations reallllllly grind my gears. Granted everyone over there are probably between the ages of 12-16, so I don't entirely blame them for their lack of awareness, but for the love of god we are ADULTS. I'm positive the majority of this forum are over the legal age of consent, or at least past puberty FFS. Maybe I'm overly technical, but I hound my irl friends on this whenever it comes up -- a 16 year old young woman does not look like a child, it's not fucking pedophilia, calm down.

On that note, and I'm positive TheBullcock has expressed his educated stance on this as well, a photo of a teenager in her swimsuit is not distribution of pornography of a minor, otherwise every social media platform would be in ashes and FT would be out of a job.

And to take it further, nudity isn't porn.

But what bugs me about the MPA stuff is the ignorance and no one calls them on the lies that get repeated in every SG thread.

Facts:

#1. The application asks for pics where your body is visible, that's all. Not underwear, not nudes – in fact it SAYS please no nudes because people were actually sending them. All it asks is that their body is visible so I know they're telling the truth about their stats. There are literally a million possible outfits where you could easily do that while being modest.

#2. The Bullcock, our resident miDDlE aGed pEdOpHile/pErv benefactor, does not review the applications. I do. Me and only me. I know that because I can see who has permission to view each area, and he has deliberately not given himself that permission and never has, ever since he first set up the member applications for me. Sure he could change it if he wanted, but what matters is that he doesn't have it, because he has told me multiple times he doesn't even want the appearance of it. (Although TBQH I would be 100% fine with him reviewing them if he did want to.) And also if he did have access, I would know, and then I would not be able to say what I just said. BUT ALSO what's weird about that whole line of "concern" is that it's somehow more OK that I'm the reviewer because I'm younger, female, and a booker. BUT OMG BUTTERFLIES AND TUMBLRINAS, WHAT IF I'M THE PSYCHO?? For all these dumb skanks know, I take their crappy, poorly lit phone pics .. with their chubby thighs, $2 flip flops, and trash filled bedrooms that look like something out of a bad horror movie .. and paper my room with them and masturbate to them day and night because obviously a person with my life wouldn't have anything better to get off to. OMG THE LOGIC!

#3. Skinny Gurl hasn't been involved in the site for literally years.

#4. The site isn't "dead", but you, the illiterate loser who just signed up and refuse to read a goddamn thing, can't see most of the forums until you prove yourself worthy, which - spoiler alert - you won't.

The hate that comes from groups like mpa seems to stem from a media-driven narrative that it is impossible to maintain a healthy, strong, and willful mindset of self love and respect for ones body that can also encompace a skinny aesthetic. I find from personal experience with friends who are/have been suffering, that such an attitide must also be paired with one of sadness and self loathing. This is promulgated by the media but somehow also fetishized by the mpa type of mindset. To such groups, the identity of being wounded, vulnerable, outcast, and pitiable is almost some sort of fucked up badge of honor. This is tipsy me rambling, but the presence a community such as SGF is a threat to that ideal. If if is possible to maintain a SGF ideal without also taking on the identity of a beautiful, weak, pitiful flower, they fear they have no way of justifying their (imagined) mystique.

On the topic of MPA, they accuse us of pedophilia/human trafficking (?!), while apparently this happend:
"Wysolovski met the girl in a chatroom through a website called MyProAna.com, a forum for people struggling with anorexia." :run:
I don’t know who owns/runs MPA, but clearly they stopped giving a fuck. All the threads on there are about trying to get the site into working order, ha! The mods keep saying it’s being “worked on” but apparently that’s been the case for a couple of years now? They don’t have themselves a @The Bullcock working away behind the scenes. You get what you deserve. I wouldn’t be at all sad to see that site drop off the face of the internet. Whoever runs that site clearly doesn’t care for the safety of their users, or their experience on the site. Yes, SGF is full of bitches, but at the end of the day - if someone accidentally posts revealing info, other members let them know quickly and tend to have each other’s backs. I rather deal with a bunch of crap from people who I know have genuine ethics and morals that they can hold themselves to, than these two-faced pro-ana girls any day. They gush over being part of the community on SGF, but you betcha, they’re on Twitter typing faster than their brain can keep up with.

I’ve been on MPA for years now and I honestly think that it lead me to believing I had a disorder when I really never did and that was more harmful and confusing to me than my eating itself.

MPA is pretty solidly separated into two halves: butterflies and people who genuinely suffer from ED’s that have often consumed their lives. The two mostly stay in their own sections of the forum and when a “butterfly wanna-rexic” asks for diet tips in enemy territory, they’re told how awful ED’s are.

I was never the butterfly type; I didn’t want to be self-destructive, and so I thought that because I already was restricting as just part of my life, I must just have an ED even though I was perfectly healthy and happy overall. Restriction never negatively impacted my life but MPA has me believe that it inherently must have somehow. This led to a lot of inner conflict and confusion about which of my thoughts are rational and which aren’t, when really fucked with me for a while.

Finding this community seriously helps me embrace living in the way that feels most authentic to me: that is, by pursuing and maintaining a thin body, for aesthetic purposes. Is it shallow to care so much about aesthetics? I literally don’t care; it’s what feels right to me. I really can’t thank FT and TB enough for making this place possible, and everyone else for being so inspiring and helping me make sense of myself.

Also, if anyone’s curious, MPA screenshots of the rejected member in question. Seems pretty boring, nothing that hasn’t been said before. Title of the thread is “lol...my username was to ‘proana’ for skinnygossip.” I’d include the rest of the thread but honestly it’s entirely covered by @Ellie ‘s bingo.

Wow, I guess I know I've been away from online proana communities long enough (thank God - never sought out purposefully, but found amidst tumblr thinspo and 'hf twitter' back in the day) because I've never heard the term "butterfly" used that way
